It’s been a turbulent month for Jon Rahm. The 26-year-old experienced the lowest of lows and highest of highs. Luckily, the latter came most recently.
Rahm won the 2021 U.S. Open last weekend. Believe it or not, it’s the first time he’s won a major, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Rahm was forced to withdraw from the Memorial Tournament just weeks prior because of a positive test. To make matters worse, he held a six-shot lead at the time heading into Sunday’s final round.
“I’m a big believer in karma, and after what happened a couple weeks ago, I stayed real positive knowing big things were coming. I didn’t know what it was going to be, but I knew we were coming to a special place,” Rahm said after winning the 2021 U.S. Open, via CNN.com.
This isn’t the only time Jon Rahm has celebrated this week. He posted a picture on Instagram of the trophy next to his wife in bed.
Rahm deserves to celebrate as much as he’d like. It was a tough month for the 26-year-old prior to his first major win over the weekend.
This could be just the start of what turns out to be an incredible run for Rahm. He came so close to winning majors before the 2021 U.S. Open. Now that he’s finally gotten over the hump, the sky’s the limit.
